An undress white uniform had existed in the U.S. Navy since 1866. Until 1941, the summer and tropical uniform was a white cotton jumper with a blue tar flap (the large and elongated back collar) and cuffs. This uniform was discontinued "for the duration" and was never reinstated. Instead, the "Undress White Jumper" still used the tar flap but was 100% white cotton (as were the button-fly navy trousers) with a single left breast patch pocket. It could be festooned with rating badges, service stripes, specialty badges, and a neckerchief. The shoes were black, low-quarter, plain-toed oxford-style with white socks. The white canvas hat, or "working cover," emerged in 1886. Over the decades, more stitching was added to keep the brim stiff and erect, earning the moniker "Dixie Cup."
